New For Fall- Add Grapeseed to Treatments!

Ready to add some new services for fall? Adding grape seed to your treatments is not only a great theme for fall menus, but this superfood has been proven to have healing powers for health, wellness, and the skin. Research shows that most of the antioxidants can be found in the grape's seed, along with its oils and extracts.

CoreStones® - The Ultimate Massage Therapy Tool

Looking for the perfect Massage Tool? Check out CoreStones! They can be heated or cooled, and are ideal for trigger point massage. CoreStones® are made from soapstone, nature's most efficient thermal conductor. The weight and warmth of the stones helps relax muscle tissue, making it more pliable. The unique patented design allows the stone to become an extension of your hand and facilitates a deep release of muscle tension without causing tissue trauma. When applied to the skin, CoreStones® provide a sily, deep, uniform pressure, enabling you to achieve maximum therapeutic results while minimizing effort and reducing strain. Save your hands and extend your career - it's like having a stone thumb! 

The 7" stones are primarily used for the legs - front and back, hips, and upper back. The length of the stone is used for longitudinal stroking and compression. The end is used for pressure point release. The 5" stone is primarily used for the back, arms, legs, and psoas. It has four usable surfaces; the length is for longitudinal stroking and compression, the flat end if used for pressure point release, the rounded end is used to work around bony landmarks and the angled end is used for cross-fiber friction, deep specific work, and working under the scapula. The 3 1/2" stones are primarily used for the neck, arms, and abdomen. The 2 1/2" stone is used for facial massage, reflexology, and deep specific work.

Luxury Spa Treatments....In Your Car?

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S550 hit US showrooms on Tuesday, and the feature list sounds more like a luxury spa treatment menu than a list of pluses for a vehicle.

Forget that New Car Smell....the new S550 features a scent-control system that is intended to scent your interior to your liking. Mercedes-Benz is offering specially-created scents such as Sports Mood, Nightlife Mood, and Downtown Mood, and it comes with an empty vial to fill with your favorite alcohol-based fragrance. Aromatherapy, anyone?

Maybe even more exciting is the newest seat massage feature - that simulates a hot stone massage! Taking multi-tasking to new limits, you can now get in your Hot Stone Massage while driving. Or riding. Or, if you're a big spender, you can even get your simulated Hot Stone Massage in the back seat, which is a feature of the Executive Package!

Somehow, I don't know that the Hot Stone Massage simulation in the S550 will quite live up to the relaxation of a Spa Hot Stone Massage, but it is a cool option, nonetheless.

What will they think of next?

Keeping your Hot Stones for Massage Clean and Sanitary Bewtween Uses

It is important to make sure you are keeping your hot stones for massage clean and washing them between each client. Here are some tips on keeping your tools sanitary for use between your hot stone massage clients:

  • Antibacterial dish detergent or soap is recommended, as well as Tea Tree Oil.
  • The stones should then be rinsed in hot water, air-dried on a towel and sprayed with a disinfectant like alcohol.
  • Using a scrub brush with antibacterial soap or tea tree oil to scrub the stones can be helpful as well.
  • The water in the massage-stone heater should be changed after each use as well, and the water reservoir should be washed with antibacterial soap and water, rinsed and sprayed with disinfectant.
  • The mat or towel that is at the bottom of the water reservoir in the heater must be replaced with a clean one.
  • Using a light oil with stone massage is recommended, as cream, lotion, gel or heavy oil like jojoba are too heavy for stone massage and tend to stick to the stones and heater surface making it more difficult to clean properly.
  • Having a second set of stones and a second heater is also recommended for back to back treatments and would be helpful in saving time between clients.

OMG - Sooooo Hot... and Portable! Mobile Hot Stone Treatments are NOW Possible!

Mobile Hot Stone Massage? Such an AMAZING idea. The VULSINI Mobile Stone Heating Bag enables hot stone massage therapists to carry out hot stone massage therapy anywhere. With the most popular professional option on the market being the traditional water heaters, this Bag is a unique and flexible alternative.Designed to hold enough stones for a full body massage, the VULSINI bag gives the therapist the freedom to travel anywhere to perform a hot stone massage.

Benefits of the VULSINI Bag:
  • Mobile: The obvious advantage of the VULSINI bag is that finally there is a way to make hot stone massage mobile.
  • Equipment: Due to the stones being warmed by a dry heat and having an in-built thermometer, there is no more need for the following traditionally used equipment: thermometer, gloves, scoops, nets etc.
  • Increased productivity: Not only does the VULSINI bag take less time to set up, but unlike a water stone heater, the bag can be transported whilst retaining heat even after its been disconnected from the mains, allowing the therapist to preheat the stones at home, thus saving time (and money!) at the clients house. See our quick formula (right) for how the bag pays for itself.
  • Dual-powered: As well as being powered by an AC power supply, the bag also features a car lighter adaptor, allowing the stones to be pre-heated in transit.
  • Storage: The VULSINI bag is around half the size of a small water heater! This allows for easier and more convenient storage in spas, colleges, therapy rooms, beauty salons and even at home.
  • Mobility: The size of the VULSINI bag also allows for easier transport and deployment than the current available heating equipment. Maintenance: Unlike existing water stone heaters, the VULSINI bag does not require regular cleaning due to limescale build-up.
  • 'Greener': Compared to existing water stone heaters, the VULSINI bag uses less power to heat, no water and is manufactured using a fraction of the metal used in water stone heaters.
